Hello here from PGL!
Class 5, Mrs. Grimble, Mr. Brand and I have all arrived safely, unpacked in our bedrooms, completed our first two activities, stuffed ourselves with delicious food, had a game of football or quieter games in our rooms and as I sit here and type they are off for a game of “Ambush” (hide and seek in the woods). So I think you’d agree it’s been a jam-packed first day and we will all certainly be ready for a bed in an hour or so…….we hope.
Depending on the children’s group number, the activities today have been either Zip Wire and Problem Solving, or Abseiling and Rifle Shooting. However, we are all lucky enough to be offered the chance for all the same activities across the week – so those of us desperate to shoot a rifle and those of us desperate to jump from a tree on a zip wire, we will all get our chance.
Everyone’s bravery has been incredible to see – even the adults – and although some of us haven’t quite been able to complete the entire challenge, we’ve definitely given it our best effort. So a huge well done to everyone so far!
Also, all of us had a hearty dinner (after our hearty lunch from mums and dads at home) no complaints of menu choice or fussy eating options at all! To be honest, there’s such a range on the menu and willingness to cater for all needs, that I can’t see any “I don’t like those” in the slightest. The majority of us even made it to the salad bar without any prompting – fantastic training from parents at home, well done!
All in all, a really successful first day full of fun, laughs and happy children. A good night’s sleep for us all (except Mr.Brand who has to suffer my snoring) and we will be ready for breakfast and round 2 of our PGL adventure.
Tomorrow consists of “Giant Swings”, “Aeroball” and many more exciting adventures.
